April was a busy month for me so I’ve been feeling shattered but it was a productive month so it was worth it.
My husband had two weeks holiday from work and most of our time was spent shopping for a new car, and it was harder work than I’d envisioned. Our current car is old and we got it before my disability happened so it’s really not practical for me. We’ve now chosen our new car and are awaiting a delivery date.
We then spent a lot of our time binge-watching Line of Duty (I’d seen a couple of series but he’d seen none of it so we watched from the beginning). It was stressful avoiding spoilers for the current series as we were catching up but we finally watched episode 5 of series 5 late on Sunday night so we’re up to date ready for the final episode this weekend!
Here are the books I read in April:
The Innocent Man by John Grisham
Adnan’s Story by Rabia Chaudry
The Case of Mary Bell by Gitta Sereny
Hate List by Jennifer Brown
The Neighbour by Fiona Cummins
The Tapestry Bag by Isabella Muir
The Blame Game by C. J. Cooke
TWA 800: The Crash, The Cover-Up and The Conspiracy by Jack Cashill
The Blue Bench by Paul Marriner
Mary’s Household Tips and Tricks by Mary Berry

The state of my TBR:
So my TBR is completely and utterly out of control again! My plan to reduce my TBR by a small number each month so that it would be 200 books smaller by the end of this year has gone awry! Given my plan I should have 2367 or fewer books on my TBR but the actual number is 2526! Ooops! I was aware that I’m accumulating books faster than I’m reading them but I didn’t realise the numbers were so far apart from each other. I think I need to have another book cull and to really think more about the books I’m buying or accepting for review. (Or accept that I’m going to have a TBR mountain that I never get to the bottom of!).
How was April for you? I hope you all had a good month and that you read lots of good books. Did you read many books? What was your favourite book of the month?
